From Barcelona comes Eduard Catafal Abril's project Autopsy Protocol, which was previously featured on the Lostfrog netlabel. In Umami he mixes violent extremes with a healthy dose of humor. Elements of headsplicing industrial and hardcore are entangled in original b-movie and local village song samples. The combination is very entertaining and shows a lot of compositional skill. Fans of Kurosawa/Miike style flicks should feel right at home in this ambiguous environment. The included videoclip shows quite alarming footage from the mind's darker corners, while the accompanying track was made using an optical theremin connected to a kaosspad and guitar pedals. Impressive stuff that proves the hardcore industrial era is not over yet.
